The Outer Zone consists of five countries:
- Violet (north, ruled by Bastille and Ruggedo);
- Yellow (east, ruled by Pepper);
- Blue (south, ruled by Ichor and later Ferret);
- Green (west, ruled by Ferret);
- Red (center, ruled by Godween).
Their capitals are Amethyst City, Topaz City, Sapphire City, Emerald City and Ruby City.
The Outer Zone is surrounded by invisible barrier. Nobody knows what lies beyond that, some believe it’s a mythical land of IZ.
The Black Brick Road crosses all five countries.
